We stayed at multiple hotels, and I’ll cover just two that are wonderful.
Hyatt Regency Paris Etoile
3 Pl. du Général Kœnig, 75017 Paris, France
This is the wonderful Hyatt Regency, and it is the only skyscraper hotel in Paris. We asked for a room with a view of the Eiffel Tower and the view was great.
At night they had a light show and Madeline took the above video to give you an idea of how pretty it was.
At night, the hotel is lit up and is easy to see from almost anywhere in Paris.
The lobby was beautiful, and we found very helpful concierge staff always greeting us and always trying to make our stay better. Their breakfast buffet, Mayo, is at the lobby level as well. The hotel is conveniently adjacent to a shopping center so if you forgot something that Hyatt doesn’t have, you can probably find it in the shopping center.
The hotel room was very quiet, and the bed was quite comfortable. They had a small desk for your laptop or tablet. The bed had USB and electricity to charge all of the gadgets. We both bring Kindles because we read quite a lot. It was nice to be able to keep them charged by the bedside.
The staff at this hotel were wonderful. I’ve always said that Hyatt seems to find people that love hospitality. The GM and team are doing a great job at this hotel. You’ll love it and we will come back.
Hyatt Regency Paris CDG
351 Av. Du Bois De La Pie Cs 42048 Paris Nord 2 C
We flew from Paris to Nice for a nice week’s stay at the Hyatt Regency Nice Palais de la Mediterranee. Our return flight to the USA was from Paris at CDG. As a result, we flew back from Nice and stayed at the Hyatt Regency Paris CDG. We arranged to get transportation to the hotel because it is not walking distance from the airport.
It is a beautiful lobby and we found it very interesting that they had bamboo growing in their lobby. It did make it feel like a retreat and nothing like the typical airport hotel.
They even had what appeared to be koi swimming around happily adding to the relaxing atmosphere.
They had a nice restaurant for breakfast and lunch, but it closes at dinner time. The Apollo breakfast buffet was very nice.
In the evening, the bar is open for a dinner menu and we both enjoyed steak frites. The French really know how to make this meal special, and we both enjoyed it. You’ll notice that they serve Dijon mustard for the frites. The French don’t think our idea of ketchup is a winner and I must say that the Dijon mustard was really good with French fries.
The room was very nice and quiet. I suppose they spend a lot of time making sure the place is soundproof. We really enjoyed our stay here and the shuttle driver got us to the airport very easily in the morning. I think you’ll enjoy this hotel if you are traveling through CDG airport in Paris.
